I will probably fix a few things but the table posts are done now. Very happy with how the table turned out.
So I was able to get a little forward movement with my AWI troops. Most of my foot officers are done now to include their basing (all but 1 guy...) and I've got some artillery finished as well. The individually based officers will do double-duty in skirmish gaming as well, and I just base coated some Continental troops for skirmish warfare along the frontier. For units, I still have a loyalist infantry unit to complete, British Cavalry, more lights, and some Continental lights.

|Yeah. "This guy" there's one in every formation. He was "hanging out" somewhere and didn't hear everyone else falling in... Anyways I discovered him so his basing is still in progress... But his paintjob rocks.
|Threw an officer down getting ready to give the order to fire.
|2 guns will look absolutely smashing in a hex.
|light glare washed out the picture. Mission orders are HOLD, PROBE, WITHDRAW, BREAKTHROUGH, DIG IN, and ADVANCE.
Once I complete flocking the Soviet platoons, it'll be onto the Germans. Have to paint and flock their bases as well and standardize my German companies for Battlegroup and CROSSFIRE.
Future Projects Preview
This year I plan on having some fun with specialist and "elite" units to include more Soviet Scouts, German Assault Engineers, SS/Veterans, Oberfeldwebel Schmidt's Veteran CROSSFIRE platoon from Stalingrad, and Soviet Naval Troops for Stalingrad gaming. That Rattenkrieg game at Fall-In really did a number on me! If I can get all of these done, it'll be onto the Western Front to work on my British and Americans.
For terrain, I've begun decorating the bases for my trees (will do a whole separate post on that), and am standardizing ground cover with my table. Going to be a busy year!
